Title: Tank Universal 2 trailer
Post by: Madjack on November 08, 2018, 08:55:15 AM
Currently in Steam Early Access, but set for release in early Feb 2019 (although it's feature complete and playable now - have chosen Feb as hopefully it's a quieter time release wise).
Coded in Nuclear Basic would you believe.

Add it to your wishlist now!

Yeah - damn shame about NB.

It's as fast as BlitzMax and has a staggering range of commands.

Unfortunately Matt stopped when it was solid enough such that it could have been marketed as a viable DX9 B3d alternative (most of B3d's commandset is recreated for example).
Instead rather than further developing the NB core, he burnt out trying to develop some sort of additional 'studio' app.

When I think about it, there's probably parallels there with Mark and B3d.

Yes, that's right.

NB was fantastic and extremely fast (even on slow systems).  A real shame Matt abandoned it.

..yes..i was one asking for source(NF/NB) and it was granted for me to have it, but for some reason i never got it..then Gabor wanted it as well, but same thing happen..one of the systems i feel sorry about more than for B3D..its just so fast and flexible to work with..

Keep in mind there was a final release where I paid Matt to fix a number of things.

No, no - I'm saying there's a version (NuclearBasic_RC8.05) that may not have gotten to most users at the time, although it was made available for registered NB owners after a time on the NG website.

I don't think it would be problem my supplying it to NB owners if requested.

I didn't get the latest version, and I wouldn't mind a copy.  I owned NB and NF, but don't have either on my hard drive any longer.

..at that time, i was using NF, and last version i have downloaded is 4.08..i do have NB license, or better say, i have purchased everything ever came from author, but im not sure about NB version i have..Mark at least released source for all of his work, so it can be updated as much as possible...shame NB/NF went under water without source given away to folks who wanted it..

As someone who Kickstarted this back in 2016 (unsuccessfully), I will absolutely be picking this up.  Congratulations on getting there eventually.  :)

@Naughty Alien
Yes I think 1.08 was the last one. It's what I have too.


The TU2 trailer looks good. I like oldschool games, right up my alley.
